How do you have your light? Is it hung above the tank or is it sitting right on top?

What happened when you had both lights going?

I only dose liquid CO2, so looks like I'll probably have to hang it after all. Did your fixture come with a reflector?

Oh, gotcha. If you just ran it directly on top of the tank with both bulbs, does it cause shadows?

Thanks Ben. I'm actually leaning towards the LEDs just because the bulbs won't ever need to be replaced and I can just put the ballast directly on the tank. Hoping to make a decision soon, so any...

Makes sense. I don't like the idea of adding a PH lower additive. I've read that it can cause more issues than it potentially solves. I'm just avoiding any fish that need more acidic water.

The blink/wink is a very nice surprise, very funny to watch. They are more than likely false Juliis since real Juliis are hard to come by and these guys were only $5 each. Either way, I like em a...
